I loved reading about the real-life FBI stories and how the author juggled his career with his dedication to the Lord. It is proof that someone can have a career in law enforcement and stay close to the Lord.
Agent Bishop: True Stories from an FBI Agent Moonlighting as a Mormon Bishop
Mike McPheters tells a rousing story of a lot of his experiences of working as an FBI Agent. With his over thirty years of working for the Bureau, he never ceases to falter from showing all the integrity of a man committed to serving his Country or his f ellow man, esp while moonlighting as a Mormon Bishop four different times. Mike iscalled as bishop in his first area as anagent while on assignment in Florida, where he worked cases involving dissenter and draft dodgers, Car Rings, plane pirates, drug trafficing, even a wedding bust. Mike worked bank robberies, a famous massacre in St. Croix, working on a SWAT team, extortion in the Everglades, the Jimmy Hoffa case, busting Timber Thieves and bears in Oregon, finding D.B. Cooper's money, the Rajaneesh case, being bishop in Pendleton, Oregon, home of the 3rd largest rodeo in the world, working a big Meth case, a kidnapping in Milton-Freewater, Ore., the Bolivian Crisis, working the Northern Utes, a special spiritual experience as the Bishop Barber, a Telemarketing Tragedy, a big Sheep Showdown, sued by the ACLU, the Montana Freemen, the last transfer to Los Angeles and then transition upon retirement. The last chapter tells of Mike's having the opportunity of helping with food relief in the Pentagon during the aftermath of 9/11 just three years after retiring. This was a most interesting book for me to read, as I learned some little known facts about law enforcement and some of the in's and out's.of an agent's life. I highly recommend this excellently crafted book.
